ABOUT THE BOOK
Helen Cooper has a charmed life. She's beautiful, accomplished, organised - the star parent at the school. Until she disappears.
But Helen wasn't abducted or murdered. She's chosen to walk away, abandoning her family, husband Sam, and her home.
Where has Helen gone, and why? What has driven her from her seemingly perfect life? What is she looking for? Sam is tormented by these questions, and gradually begins to lose his grip on work and his family life.
He sees Helen everywhere in the faces of strangers. He's losing control.
But then one day, it really is Helen's face he sees...
WHAT SHE LEFT by Rosie Fiore is a gripping and completely consuming story that raises the question, can you ever truly know somebody? Brimming with drama, this story really focuses on the characters with each character telling the story as they see it, and I really enjoyed getting to know Helen, Sam, Lara, and the children, inside and out.
I presumed from the description that this may be some sort of twisted story with some sort of crime angle, but nothing prepared me for this wonderfully in-depth, character-driven plot of life, lies, and finding the strength to do what needs to be done to survive. My opinion of characters constantly changed as the story developed and my heart broke for the children that had already lost so much in their short lives. I had originally planned to read just a few pages before bed but immediately I was ensnared with what was happening and I devoured it in one go.
WHAT SHE LEFT by Rosie Fiore is a brilliant story that will really get under your skin and make you realise that looks can be deceptive, and I think it would portray perfectly on our tv screens. An excellent story with excellent characters and perfectly paced, WHAT SHE LEFT by Rosie Fiore is a winner for me.
